It’s been 20 years since the 1999 wrestling team brought home a national championship title, and on Jan. 19, that team will be celebrated. 

The recognition will occur prior to the varsity match versus Shikellamy at about 12:45 p.m. At the conclusion of the match, a reception for the 1999 team members, their families and fans will be held in the Bald Eagle Area High School cafeteria until about 4:30 p.m.

To make a reservation, email Marilee Close at marilee.close@beasd.net by Jan. 16. Catered food will be provided by Troy’s Philadelphia Style Hoagies.

On Jan. 15 during the wrestling dual versus Tyrone, the BEA 2018 state championship-winning team will be honored. The theme for this is “Gold Rush.” The meet will start at 7 p.m.
